67 Years Later, Son Honors Fallen New York Officer

April 24, 2014  | 

John Jarmacz was 8 months old when his father, a Syracuse, N.Y., police officer, was killed in the line of duty. 

His father, also John Jarmacz, died in 1947 when he fell from a moving police wagon as he struggled with a suspect, Syracuse.com reports.

Department of Public Works employees, a Syracuse police officer and John and his wife Jodi gathered earlier this week to post the first two of 11 markers that will go up around Syracuse to honor fallen officers.

The Syracuse Police Department, the Police Benevolent Association and Rochester-based Badge of Honor Association are erecting signs around the city to honor them.

67 years later is late, but better late than Never. Hope this helps the Fallen Officer's Children find some peace as well as the Grand-children, and on down the Family Line.
